Transit vision and assessment report now available!
Scroll down to our 'Resources' section to find our newly published Transit Vision and Assessment Report! This report identifies where an anticipated need for transit services in Rockdale may exist, as well as short-, medium-, and long-term needs to meet current and future demand in the County.
Feel free to email us at email@example.com with any questions or comments regarding the report or the study.
The Rockdale TDP (transit development plan) will identify the transit needs and opportunities of the county to inform its future transit system investments. By aiding communities in developing a transit vision, the Rockdale TDP will evaluate transit alternatives that move the community closer to fulfilling its public transportation needs. This TDP will lay the foundation for partnerships to successfully address transit needs that best support the county’s continued growth and economic development.
Planning for mobility is charting a lifeline that connects Rockdale to the Atlanta region’s activity centers, improves local circulation, and enhances economic opportunity. The TDP will provide Rockdale with a fresh perspective and a new opportunity to examine the impacts of transit improvements on lives — from the amount of time riders spend commuting and access to job opportunities and education to impacting health and wellness, reducing congestion, fostering economic development, and ensuring that Rockdale continues to be the preferred community where everyone thrives.

Evaluates current transportation conditions
Gauges current transportation needs through public and stakeholder engagement
Anticipates future mobility demands
